It's common knowledge that Musicweb has an editor who substitutes the horrendous and artificial circumlocution 'it is to be hoped that' for 'hopefully', and the like. But he's still happy to allow hideously quasi-grammatical paragraphs like the following through?:
"The Quintetto Bottesini has done great service to Farrenc with superbly warm performances that allow the music to breathe. They were formed with the specific aim of digging out works for this unusual combination and, indeed are named after double bass player and composer Giovanni Bottessini. They have found and performed many works for this line-up by a disparate collection of composers that encompasses Hummel and Vaughan Williams. It also includes works by Piazzolla as well as those composed especially for them by several contemporary Italian composers."
